My heavy eyes opened And I found myself at The health care centre. The physician told me “You’ll have to stay For a week more”. I loathed these Medicinal smells since childhood.
I stood back For two more days And decided to depart As I was suffocated at that place. I lied i have a family function And left my syringe Which he was supposed to give me On that day itself.
The doctor knew About my lesions Which needed a break Just for a week. I was a model by my passion And i knew they won’t Embrace my flaws.
I scratched my wound They were filthy to me With a thought keeping in my mind “When you water things, they in turn give you shine”. And then I drained my wounds Which instead pained more. It caused a huge ache to me And I arrived to the hospital soon.
The physician didn’t ask me For he knew my faults He sat with me Gave a drug to me and I fell asleep. When i woke up again He asked me, “How are you feeling?” I felt more peace With his voice And i felt i was pulled from death back.
He told me few things About priceless life He said, “When you get a wound Don’t scratch it with water It often makes your muscles And your cuticles strong, Let the blood get clot And soon it would peel off your pain.” His medical language Taught me many things In just few.
After then, He packed few dozen Of syrup which included The liquid of patience in it. “Syrup of patience is the only medicine which won’t harm you in your entire lifespan, It is the hybrid of pain and self-love which would gift you a heavenly life.
It has been Five years I still remember The exact accident And today I’ll write Write about the Syrup of patience.
SYRUP OF PATIENCE
When you get a wound Don’t segregate yourself Apart from beauty, For the pain is an Empty chaos which your heart beats.
Instead vaccinating yourself with a syringe of soreness, Let the time heal you With his solemn patience.
Your lack of patience Will turn your wound into scars, Instead kiss your self in the days of dark.
Let your love come From the inner soul Of yourself, You are an Alice Of your own wonderland.
Rubbing your lesions Would instead give you grief, Instead taking a syrup of patience Which would bestow you relief.
Not everything you water will in turn give you shine, Some can even be the cause of your own whine.
I know the second wave has hit us hard and I know almost everyone you/I/we know is either being tested positive or is suffering acutely from the symptoms. I know this time we all are losing our heart and hope. I know this time you ain't searching for YouTube recipes, you ain't brewing coffee, you ain't painting or singing or dancing or doing makeup and you ain't clicking random sky pictures or laughing at some funny joke. I know this time you ain't reading a new book or writing romances or dreaming about your crushes. This time you are praying and praying for random strangers whom you didn't meet even once in your life, I know this time you are sharing oxygen leads to strangers and trying to help someone as much as possible. I know this time you are keeping a check on that person from school whom you never talked to, or your enemy or your ex boyfriend / girlfriend who broke your heart because you know this time it's different, this time it's more than just yourself. I know things are different this time. I know you are losing hope, I know your heart is empty, I know you feel helpless and horrible. I know you cry at the day end for some little kid who lost her mother, which you saw in news the other afternoon. I know things will be tough, I know things are. But let me tell you this too shall pass. Take a break. Watch a good movie. Make tea or tacos. Do some online movie date. Cook for your partner. Write someone a letter. Paint your walls. Look at the sky. Click pictures. Plant a tree. Yes, people are dying at an unimaginable rate. But let me tell you they are getting better as well. Patients are returning from hospital after being completely fine, someone is sleeping in her/his mother's lap after being tested negative, someone is hugging their love for the longest time. Somewhere someone is getting better every minute, I know it might sound hard to accept, but things are getting better. Things will get better. Let's stay together. Let's stay connected. Let's close our eyes for a bit and let's breathe the air, it's going to be fine. It is getting better. Let things go, let everything that's affecting you, go, sink away. Because yes, this too shall pass, this is passing. We are doing better. Let's not lose hope, let's do it, let's fight it. Together.
